As a part of Philly Tech Week presented by Comcast, NExT Philadelphia is hosting a forum to provide our audience with strategies and resources to help them strengthen their voice in the Tech industry. Knowing that African-Americans are underrepresented in the STEM fields, we hope to assist our members in overcoming potential obstacles as they grow in the field.
The meeting will be a panel discussion where we will invite individuals who are utilizing technology to strengthen their voice and expand their reach. The panelists will discuss the motivation behind their project, hurdles that he/she has experienced, and strategies for individuals who are interested in entering the Tech industry.
The topics include:
- Value and benefits of Podcasts
- Women in STEM fields
- Developing Apps
- Corporate Advancement in Tech industry
